Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak.
An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you’re cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
Dr. Jumper utilizes a 3- Dimensional Mirror Image Technique emphasizing optimul posture and spinal alignment as the primary goals, while simultaneously documenting improvements in pain and functional based outcomes. The spine, pelvis, rib cage and skull are positioned in the exact opposite of the abnormal alignment, determined by posture and/or 20-20 digital x-rays. These 3-Dimensional Adjustments re-balance the bodies sense of proper balance by triggering nerve reflexes that affect the slow twitch muscle fibers (postural stabilizing muscles). The devices Dr. Jumper utilizes are, 3-D In Office Denneroll Tracton Table System, 2-Way Traction, Osci Stadium Whole Body vibration tables, 3-D mirror image exercises, and extension/compression traction. Dr. Jumper will work with you to determine those most effective for you. The end result is optimum posture and spinal Alignment, less pain, more mobility, and better overall health. All this enables him to correct your spine to its most stable position, in the shortest amount of time, and the most cost effective way. Call 720-493-5885.
